Challenge Course

Challenge Course High & Low Ropes

The Outdoor Recreation Challenge Course events consist of two separate sections, High and Low Ropes. Both sections often accomplish many of the same goals, with the primary difference being with the High Ropes section each participant will have the additional opportunity to complete the challenges or tasks while being a little higher in the air.

With our Low Ropes section, our Facilitators lead groups through various physical and intellectual challenges on or near the ground using portable initiatives or puzzles and established elements along with multiple props, planks, buckets, and telephone poles, to name a few.  These portable initiatives and elements are designed to encourage group problem-solving and aim to promote team development. Low-element events have been proven to help facilitate cohesion and teamwork within groups of all sizes

 

The High Ropes course can accommodate a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 40 participants with events typically being booked between  3 to 4 hours. 

Our Low Ropes program can accommodate groups of 8 and up to 100. Additionally, our events typically start at 2 to 3 hours, but can be customized to meet the needs of your group.
